JADAK Unveils RFID Starter Kit

JADAK, a business unit of Novanta Corp., has announced its ThingMagic RAIN Starter Kit, developed in collaboration with Impinj and the RAIN RFID Alliance. The starter kit is intended to increase exposure and access to RFID technology, provide a platform for students and hobbyists to learn how to apply this technology, and promote best practices for using RFID.

"It's important for JADAK to support the adoption of RAIN RFID by increasing access to the technology for students and non-professional developers who will become the future innovators of the Internet of Things," said Harinath Reddy, JADAK's senior director of research and development for ThingMagic RFID, in a prepared statement.

The starter kit consists of a ThingMagic reader and sample RFID tags from RAIN RFID Alliance members. The kit provides item connectivity via Impinj's Indy R500 RFID reader chip and sample tags enabled by Monza tag chips, as well as functionality per Alliance developer community guidelines. For professional applications, JADAK's ThingMagic EL6e Smart Module and Elara USB Plug-and-Play Reader provide a fuller set of features and higher levels of performance.

The starter kit is being distributed by atlasRFIDstore.com, a global distributor of RFID hardware.
